The Real Goatman And His Kin

The Real Goatman And His Kin

By Damien Jennings

Artwork Ricardo Pustanio

The Goatman is a hominid cryptid most commonly associated with Louisiana, Maryland and Texas. It is described as a hybrid creature; part man and part goat. Some claim it is a relative of the New Orleans evil cupacabra like cryptid the Grunch. The urban legends of them often tells of it killing young lusting couples in parked cars or scouring neighborhoods killing family pets. There are also tales of them breaking into peoples houses and usually the raping of it's victims. And many attest from the areas that he haunts, it does not matter if your a man or woman he will overtake you and have sex with you none the less.

 

THE GOATMAN IN THE NEWS:

Did it come from beneath Lake Worth? -

Mystery still cloaks the legend of the Lake Worth Monster and his tire-chucking, hair-raising appearance in July 1969.

On the afternoon of July 10 that year, the Star-Telegram's front page carried a headline above the fold "Fishy Man-Goat Terrifies Couples Parked at Lake Worth."

Reporter Jim Marrs broke the story to the world.

"Six terrified residents told police early today they were attacked by a thing they described as being half-man, half-goat and covered with fur and scales.

"Four units of Fort Worth police and the residents searched in vain for the thing, which was reported seen at Lake Worth, near Greer Island."

John Reichart told police that the creature leapt from a tree and landed on his car, and he showed them an 18-inch scar down the side of his car as proof.

The police officer told Marrs that "we did make a serious investigation because those people were really scared."

The police also revealed that they had received reports in the past but had laughed them off.

The next night, the monster, in front of a couple of dozen witnesses, was said to have uttered a "pitiful cry" and hurled a tire from a bluff at them.

The police weren't laughing anymore. Hundreds of amateur trackers descended on the area with all manner of Remingtons, Brownings and Colts.

The real Goatman (Goat Man Of Texas) Legend and more as told By Lisa Lee Harp Waugh.

"The Goatman beast of Marshall and Denton, Texas has a undying want for for sex." "It does not discriminate against just having it's way with man or woman or beast." "And often all are said to be equal prey as far as it is concerned." "Many liken the creature to being a 7- 9 foot tall Pan or devil like creature with red eyes and bluish skin." "With the body of a human being, and the horns and head of a goat." Says Lisa Lee Harp Waugh. " I with the late Kerry von Erich hunted for many a night in the summers of my youth."

"In Australia there is a story of a Goatman that tends to help individuals in distress. He leads those lost in the desert to water." Said Waugh, "Some Goatman Mysteries revolve around the infamous tales of goatman Bridge in the States, but in other countries there is a Goatman Well, hill, And the most haunted Goatman location in the world the Banks of Lock Ness." Many believe the Goatman of Loch Ness is a disturbing demonic creature that the great beast Aliester Crowley let loose in one of his Black Magick Spells that he prefomed at Boleskines." "The Boleskines Devil goatman is often called the red eyed or green eyed ghost of the loch."

In the late 1800's Denton, Texas was quite small and Arglye (where the actual haunted cursed goatman's bridge is actually located) was all but non existent at the time. There was a man named Jack "Goat Man" Kendall that lived out that way who owned several flocks of large black orange red and green eyed goats. Through the sale of Goat meat, cheese milk hides and hooves and horns he made a humble living.

Many of the merchants in Denton, Marshall, Henderson and as far as Galveston and also Shreveport, Louisiana thought this old man to be very strange and often he was the topic of conversation as far as New Orleans.

This Jack "The "Goat Man" was a private person, only because no one wanted to know his private affairs only for the fear that what he did in the hot fields was actually perverse and not Christian. Many believed that not only did his sexual involvement with his many goats produce strange half human offspring's but that he was in league with the works of the devil.

Jack dressed in clothes made of entirely from goatskins. his shoes his hat all made from the leftovers of his slaughtered flocks. They say you knew when he was around because his stench was so strong and overpowering that it would make those with the strongest of stomachs gag out right to his face. And they say his goats did not smell any better.

No one knew much about him from where he came or how he spent his days. They could only surmise that his flocks were his main chore. He also had a special goat that stayed by his side. She was a goat he called Delilah.

Many of the people in Denton, Marshall, Henderson, Tyler and Galveston knew that his wife Myrtle Mary died mysteriously. They will tell you her body was found one day close to the train tracks near Marshall. Many who saw her they say the look on her face was so wild with fright. And that she wa dressed in a multi colored fur Goatskin outfit from head to toe. They the citizens of Marshall being god fearing souls,buried her on a Friday. And when someone went to her grave in the old Marshall Texas cemetery, it looked like she had dug herself out. But that's another tale for later.

Some believe that one day on the Fourth of July a few of the men in Denton got drunk and started riding around the area. They found Old Jack herding his goats late at night and drove the old man and his goats off the bridge. Others believe he found them stealing his goats or possible even having sex with his prized goat Delilah. But as the rest of the sorted story goes he told them to get off is land. The processed to beat him mercifully cutting his throat and the head off of his beloved Delilah and they threw him bleeding and his goats head into the dark waters of the creek.

When the sheriff's of Denton and Marshall found out about this he investigated and could no longer find the old man or a single hair nor sign of his great flock of over 500 plus goats.

Weeks later after an event in the city a family was crossing the bridge in their wagon and could hear odd noises from underneath the bridge.

After they crossed the bridge they smelled a foul death stench that made them cover their faces. The horrid great smell was like some huge wild animal had died and the smell of sulfur and urine. When supposedly they turned and looked back and saw a wild beast man 9 foot tall goatman thing with devil red frey eyes staring at them, holding the head of Jacks favorite goat and in the other the lifeless body of old Jack himself.

Many believe that the Goatman creature is actually the child or offspring from Jacks sexual unions with his goats. and many believe he fathered hundreds of the creatures and they went on to father even more that are said to haunt the woods and swamps from Marshall and as Far as the swamps of New Orleans.

Now as of today the stories are that you can hear the sound of hooves on the bridge and splashes in the water and some people say they saw the man but his head was a goats head. Many often tell of the terrible stench when the goatman or thing is near. They say it smells like a culmination of rancid flesh, urine, sulphur and an odor similar to a fertilizer plant.

I've been to this what many call The Goatman Bridge many times in my life, But to this day I have only smelled him approaching and decided not to stick around to see if he was real.

I must warn you and tell everyone that the old bridge is very dangerous at night and I have heard the splashes and heard weird sounds while standing on the bridge. One night Kerry Von Erich myself and several of our ghost hunting friends set out to see if we could meet the demon Goatman eye to eye. but when this great smelling evil stench filled the air we decided to leave in hurry. We were all only in our early teens and i guess the fear that we had come across something really supernatural made us panic and run.

WARNING: Do NOT By any means try to Investigate This Very Haunted Bridge Alone At Night.

Others across the United States have describe it as being a cross between the two a mutant form to a large degree. It is likely that the demonized images of the incubus and even the horns and cloven hooves of Satan, as depicted in much medieval and post-medieval Christian literature and art, were taken from the images of Pan.

 

Often known or called Satyrs (or Fauns) in Cryptozoology, the Goatman of Maryland is today associated with Governor’s Bridge Road, Lottsford Road and Fletchertown Road, in Prince George's County, and with the nearby Glenn Dale Hospital, the former site of a state tuberculosis sanatorium. It is reported to have attacked a number of witnesses and to have damaged property.

In Greek mythology, satyrs (in Greek, Sátyroi) are a troop of male companions of Pan and Dionysus— "satyresses" were a late invention of poets— that roamed the woods and mountains. In mythology they are often associated with sex drive and vase-painters often portrayed them with large strong throbbing erections.

Pan is the Greek god of shepherds and flocks, of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music: paein means to pasture. He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr. He is recognized as the god of fields, groves, and wooded glens; because of this, Pan is connected to fertility and season of spring. Pan is famous for his sexual powers, and is often depicted with an erect huge phallus. Diogenes of Sinope, speaking in jest, related the myth of Pan learning masturbation from his father, Hermes, and teaching the habit to his beloved shepherds.

Diogenes of Sinope, speaking in jest, related the myth of Pan learning masturbation from his father, Hermes, and teaching the habit to his beloved shepherds.

He was believed by the Greeks to have plied his charms primarily on maidens and shepherds, such as Daphnis. Though he failed with Syrinx and Pitys, Pan didn't fail with the Maenads—he had every one of them, in one orgiastic riot or another. To effect this, Pan was sometimes multiplied into a whole tribe of Panes.

Pan's greatest conquest was that of the moon goddess Selene. He accomplished this by wrapping himself in a sheepskin to hide his hairy black goat form, and drew her down from the sky into the forest where he seduced her.

Pan's ancient Roman equivalent was Faunus, and they were both Horned God deities. For this reason he is popular among many Neopagans and occultic groups.

In the 17th century, the satyr legend came to be associated with stories of the orangutan, a great ape now found only in Sumatra and Borneo. Many early accounts which apparently refer to this animal describe the males as being sexually aggressive towards human women and towards females of its own species. The first scientific name given to this ape was Simia satyrus.

The glaistig is a creature from Scottish mythology. In most stories, the creature, is described as a beautiful woman with dusky or gray skin and long blonde hair. Her lower half was that of a goat, usually disguised by a long, flowing green robe or dress.

According to legends, the glaistig could serve in legend as both a malign and benign creature. Some stories have her luring men to her lair via either song or dance, where she would then drink their blood. Other such tales have her casting stones in the path of travelers or throwing them off course.

In other, more benign incarnations, the glaistig is a protector of cattle and herders, and in at least one legend in Scotland, the town of Ach-na-Creige had such a spirit protecting the cattle herds. The townsfolk, in gratitude, poured milk from the cows into a hollowed-out stone for her to drink. According to the same legend, her protection was revoked after one local youth poured boiling milk into the stone, burning her. She has also been described in some folklore as watching over children while their mothers milked the cows and fathers watched over the herds.

The Goat Man Pan

Another rendition of the glaistig legend is that the glaistig was once a mortal noblewoman, to whom a "fairy" nature had been given or who was cursed with the goat's legs and immortality, and since has been known as "The Green Lady". In this incarnation, she seems to be more benign, and watches over houses and also looks after those of weak mind as well. Such Green Lady myths have been associated with a number of locations in Scotland, including Ardnacaillich, Donolly Castle, Loch Fyne, Crathes Castle and in Wales at Caerphilly. A similar tale has also been told of Henniker, New Hampshire.

A third tale synthesizes the two threads. It tells of a mortal woman who lived on an island near the Firth of Clyde and who was smitten by the fairies and was granted her unspoken wish to become one of them. Afterwards, she dedicated herself to watching over the cattle of the island until a farmer offended her greatly through rude treatment and she left, making her way to the mainland by leaping to nearby islets before snagging her hoof in the rigging of a passing ship. She, according to this tale, fell into the ocean and presumably drowned, or at any rate was never seen again.

The glaistig ("Glashtig") was a Scottish mythical creature or hag.

It came in two forms, namely, firstly a kind of satyr, a supposed she-hag or hag in the shape of a goat, secondly, a kind of beautiful female fairy, identical with the bean-nighe, usually attired in a green robe, seldom seen except at the bank of a stream, and engaged in washing, also known as maighdean uaine (green maiden). "Green" anciently portended death, and many families had a green ghost attached to them, such as Menie House near Aberdeen.

The name is evidently cognate with the Manx "glashtin", and is similar to the "sacbaun" of Galloway.

In Roman mythology, fauns are place-spirits (genii) of untamed woodland. Romans connected their fauns with the Greek satyrs, wild and orgiastic drunken followers of Bacchus (Greek Dionysus). However, fauns and satyrs were originally quite different creatures. Both have horns and both resemble goats below the waist, humans above; but originally satyrs had human feet, fauns goatlike hooves. The Romans also had a god named Faunus and goddess Fauna, who, like the fauns, were goat-people.

The Barberini Faun (Glyptothek, Munich, Germany) is a Hellenistic marble, c. 200 BCE (Before Common Era) that was found in the Mausoleum of the Emperor Hadrian (the Castel Sant'Angelo) and installed at Palazzo Barberini by Cardinal Maffeo Barberini (later Pope Urban VIII), the patron of Bernini, who heavily restored and refinished it, so that its present 'Hellenistic baroque' aspect may be enhanced.

A modern account of several purported meetings with Pan is given by R. Ogilvie Crombie (born Edinburgh, lived 1899-1975), in the books "The Findhorn Garden" (Harper & Row, 1975) and "The Magic Of Findhorn" (Harper & Row, 1975). Crombie claimed to have met Pan many times at various locations including Edinburgh, on the island of Iona and at the Findhorn Foundation, all in Scotland.

 

“The Real Goat Man” In America

Reports of the Goatman legend began in Louisiana in the early 1800's and in other parts of America sometimes. From there, sightings spread to other states; with reports of the Goatman being made as far south as Texas in the 1960s, Washington and California during the 1980s, and as far north as Ontario, Canada and Cannelton, Indiana during the 1990s. Others tell that around the 1950's, sightings occurred in Upper Marlboro and Forestville, Prince George's County, Maryland. Over the years sightings have now been reported in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin.The largest, frequent and most frightening majority of this strange cryptid sightings has been always associated with the southern parts of the United States. Sightings are numerous through out the United States and often noted in the months of October - May.

Since the 1970s, the Goatman has become the subject of a number of popular urban myths in the deep south. Myths vary, but the Goatman preying on courting couples, or attacking cars parked at the side of the road, are both common themes. Florida sightings are sometimes a little more strange and actual rape by the creature is reported from male and female victims alike.

Urban myths often put secret genetics programs forward as a possible source of the Goatman. Experiments by the federal government and the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center, Maryland, have both been suggested as possible Goatman origins. Many tales tell of a strange old man that had sex with his pack of goats and produced the cryptid from this union originally.

The 19th century image of Baphomet, created by Eliphas Lévi. The arms bear the Latin words SOLVE (dissolve) and COAGULA (congeal).

The goat on the frontispiece carries the sign of the pentagram on the forehead, with one point at the top, a symbol of light, his two hands forming the sign of hermetism, the one pointing up to the white moon of Chesed, the other pointing down to the black one of Geburah. This sign expresses the perfect harmony of mercy with justice. His one arm is female, the other male like the ones of the androgyn of Khunrath, the attributes of which we had to unite with those of our goat because he is one and the same symbol. The flame of intelligence shining between his horns is the magic light of the universal balance, the image of the soul elevated above matter, as the flame, whilst being tied to matter, shines above it. The beast's head expresses the horror of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely responsible part has to bear the punishment exclusively; because the soul is insensitive according to its nature and can only suffer when it materializes. The rod standing instead of genitals symbolizes eternal life, the body covered with scales the water, the semi-circle above it the atmosphere, the feathers following above the volatile. Humanity is represented by the two breasts and the androgyn arms of this sphinx of the occult sciences."

Levi called his image “the Baphomet of Mendes”, presumably following Herodotus' account that the god of Mendes — the Greek name for Djedet, Egypt — was depicted with a goat's face and legs. Herodotus relates how all male goats were held in great reverence by the Mendesians, and how in his time a woman publicly copulated with a goat. However the deity that was venerated at Egyptian Mendes was actually a ram deity Banebdjed (literally Ba of the lord of djed, and titled "the Lord of Mendes"), who was the soul of Osiris. Levi combined the images of the Tarot of Marseilles Devil card and refigured the ram Banebdjed as a he-goat, further imagined by him as "copulator in Anep and inseminator in the district of Mendes".

Goatman

Two of the most notable satyrs of modern America are the Pope Lick Goatman monster of Kentucky and the creature called "Goatman" which is usually associated with Maryland, but this same label is sometimes applied to sightings of satyr-like creatures from any American state, regardless of how far away from Maryland it is. Other creatures of interest are the New Orleans Grunch, the Chevo Man of California and the Marshall, Texas Goatman.

 

The southern "Goatman" is reported as very sexually aggressive, especially towards teenage lovers. It is often seen carrying off bloody human body parts from accident scenes, and its strange activities include damaging cars and killing small helpless animals. There are also unsubstantiated reports of the Maryland and Louisiana Goatman known for actually rape and killing male and female humans indiscriminately.

The Pope Lick Monster is a half-man and half-goat or half-sheep cryptid reported to live beneath a Norfolk Southern Railway trestle over Pope Lick Creek, in the Fisherville area of Louisville, Kentucky.

Numerous urban legends exist about the creature's origins and the methods it employs to claim its victims. According to some accounts, the creature uses either hypnosis or voice mimicry to lure trespassers onto the trestle to meet their death before an oncoming train. Other stories claim the monster jumps down from the trestle onto the roofs of cars passing beneath it. Yet other legends tell that it attacks its victims with a blood-stained axe. It has also been said that the very sight of the creature is so unsettling that those who see it while walking across the trestle are driven to leap off.

Other legends explain the creature's origins, including that it is a human goat hybrid, and that it was a circus freak who vowed revenge after being mistreated. In one version, the creature escaped after a train derailed on the trestle. Another version claims that the monster is really the twisted reincarnated form of a farmer who sacrificed goats in exchange for Satanic powers.

The legends have turned the area into a site for legend tripping. There have been a number of deaths and accidents at the trestle since its construction, despite the presence of an 8 foot (2.4 m) fence to keep thrill-seekers out.
